Who Do I love?

Umm Who Do I love these days?  Well umm so.... many people. Of course my family..that goes without saying. But let me tell you who is on my list BIG TIME!
First of all  I got a special little gift in the mail a week or so ago...well it wasn't really for me, it was for Adam.  It was from my new friend Julie. Do I love her. UMM Yes big time. Why?  Look at this and you tell me..do I need to explain?
I think not!
Now Let me tell you who else makes my heart soar.  That would be the little one holding this beautiful frame. Want to know why? Because this year was the first time I really explained in depth to him about his autism. I explained to him that he had somehting called Asperger's Syndrome and that although it gave him certain challenges, epecially in social situations, that it also gave him his gift of amazing intelligence, his ability to problem solve, compute numbers quickly, construct things with ease etc. I told him that really he was kind of lucky,but that there were othe children with autism that really sturggled and that he had really been blessed.  I told him that we would be walking again for Autism Speaks to raise $ to help find a cure and he said, "but Mom, I don't want to cure my Autism".  Now if you know where we came from and the strides that we have made from then until now, that would have really melted your heart.  Know what, I don't want to change my little boy either, he is so perfect the way that he is,but I do want to give him the tools that he needs to survive soicially.  I am so proud of him!  I love that he loves and accepts himself the way that he does...his words and this frame that Julie made, inspired this layout. 
What a cool kid!  I just love him oodles and I love his Autism too!
Okay now let me tell you who else I love!!!  I love SCRAPPY NAN...from the ZUTTER ZIZTERS..yep I met up with her the other day and she gave me some very nice prizes to  give away at my crop to benefit Autism Speaks!  Yep She Rocks just a little bit.  Thank you Nan for your support!

But wait there's more!  I love FISKARS TOO!  I had no idea they were sponsoring the crop and on Wednesday there was a rap at my door and then someone ran away, which kind of startled me, then a white van took off which starled me a bit more.  What I learned is that Fiskars uses FEDEX,thus the white van.  They dropped off a BIG BOX with a pretty PRICEY gift which just might have to be a grand prize.uh huh...it is top secret for now!  I love you too FISKARS.  Let's just say...when someone wins this prize..they may be 'tuning the rest of the croppers out" for the rest of the day. Enough said!

And Lastly, I am spreading the love to..LITTLE YELLOW BICYCLE..thank you  for sending some goodies my way for the crop as well. Oh...so pretty. I love your papers and I wish that I could keep them for myself, but that would be just wrong!  Ugh!  Thank you so much for your generosity.

Thanks to everyone for showing their love and support, now I am all a'flutter!
